IMHO it was not _set_ to "not running", it was still in this initial 
state.

No, there was no status change for channel 5 in syslog between
Feb 26 22:26:11 vdr vdr: [4646] VDR version 1.3.41 started
and
Feb 27 00:10:07 vdr vdr: [4646] exiting
The VDR switched on automatically some seconds before.

Before that channel switch we could not get any status event, because 
we were on a different transponder.

It seems ZDF (channel 5) did not send any running status information.
